WELCOME THANK YOU.

From our Founders and Global Senior Pastors. Phil & Chris Pringle are the founders of C3 Church Global. Coming from New Zealand to Sydney in 1980, they set out to start a church that would be contemporary, relevant and anointed. Their first service was held at Easter time with 12 people, and now we see over 100,000 people gathering weekly in more than 550 locations across the world. The church they originally built is a dynamic multisite congregation of thousands of members known as C3 Church Oxford Falls on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. They also started C3 College – a ministry and creative arts school and Oxford Falls Grammar School – a leading, nationally recognised Kindergarten to Year 12 school. As artists, songwriters, authors and speakers, Phil & Chris have had a major impact on the Church at large with their message of faith and vision to see churches built in neighbourhoods and cities all around the globe. Their heart is to see the church glow with the glory of God and thriving in their local communities through the power of the Holy Spirit. They are down-to-earth, humorous and refreshingly real - delivering powerful preaching of the word and carrying a sensitivity to the Holy Spirit that will leave you changed for good! ✝

God has called us not just to “enlarge our tents,

(as in building bigger and more impacting churches)” but also to enlarge the place of our tent. To increase the footprint of kingdom influence. To do this we need many more churches. When the ‘footprint’ of our churches is enlarged, we widen the geographical reach and cultural diversity allowing the church to be far more accessible to more people. As the footprint of the kingdom of God is enlarged, so is its influence and ability to impact more people. God is calling us to enlarge. Many churches are attempting to

Every church we plant is like placing the footprint of God into that community. Verse 3 states that we will spread abroad to the right and to the left. The future for our churches may not be off in a distant nation somewhere but maybe right next

C3 C h u r c h G l o b a l

WE BELIEVE There is one God. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

22

In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ the Son of God; We believe in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His victorious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, His constant intercession and in His imminent return. In the person and work of the Holy Spirit with His fruits and gifts available in the Church. The Bible is the living word of God. It is infallible, authoritative and everlasting and is the foundation of all Christian doctrine. In the existence of an evil spiritual being known as the devil. In the spiritually lost condition of all people and the essential need for the new birth by faith in Jesus Christ. In the baptism of the Holy Spirit as a gift available to believers subsequent to the new birth, with normal evidence of speaking in other tongues. In the sacraments of the Lords Supper and baptism by full immersion in water for all believers. In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting separation from God. In the church being the body of Christ, and each member being an active part of a local church, fulfilling the Great Commission. Marriage was instituted by God, ratified by Jesus, and is exclusively between a man and a woman. It is a picture of Christ and his church. Sex is a gift from God for procreation and unity, and it is only appropriate within and designed for marriage. �

Of the movies she can foggily remember, ‘The Green Mile’ may be her favorite… or she may be thinking of another movie starring Tom Hanks… or it could be someone else entirely.

EMPOWERING PASTORS

Then Jesus came close to them and said, “All the authority of the universe has been given to me. Now go in my authority and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. And teach them to faithfully follow all that I have commanded you.
